George has a BEng/MEng (Systems & Control) and a PhD (Neural Networks Learning) from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of Patras, Greece, and a PGCE (Higher Education) from Brunel University. He developed embedded systems for the cement (1990-1993) and automotive (1997-1998) industries using soft computing and computational intelligence methodologies. He held research and academic posts at the University of Athens and Brunel University before coming to Birkbeck in 2004. His research interests are in learning, adaptation and evolution in complex environments with applications in user modelling, temporal sequence processing, adaptive systems and personalised learning environments.
